As I continue focusing on one game in my collection each month, May is Donkey Kong Month! I picked DK because I just saw “The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters” and was inspired to make a run on my high score. My current high score is 115,100, which I’ve held for about 6-7 years. Tied it before but never beat it. Last month, I beat my high score on Phoenix a couple times. I expect nothing less this month.
Here are a few links to get you in the Donkey Kong spirit!:
- Donkey Kong Flash Game – Seems to be an emulation. Pretty cool. (Link Removed due to threat notification)
- The King of Kong Official Site – Very entertaining “documentary”. Some misrepresentation accusations, but overall a great flick!
- G4 TV King of Kong Broadcast Announcement – Here’s the planned broadcast.
- Donkey Kong Wikipedia Page – Great history.
